Staying Hueled Since 2018

I’ve been using Huel since February 2018 so I thought it was time to share my experience!

I started using Huel as a fix for my poor nutrition over lunchtimes but it has become so much more. Having had a complicated history with food (I gained a lot of weight when I was younger), good nutrition and balance was always something that eluded me. It was always something too complicated and time consuming. I remember visiting a nutritionist friend and coming away thinking that I would have to make this a big part of my life, which was something I didn’t have the time for. I always used to think ‘If I had a meal pill I could take, with the exact nutrition in the right quantity, then I would be all over that.’. It turns out that Huel delivers that and so much more. It takes the stress out of both meal selection and nutrition in a perfect way, but is also delicious.

Since then my 2.5 year relationship with Huel has only made my life better. I now use Huel at least twice a day and stick to one main meal in the evenings. I blend Huel with a Nutribullet and throw in ice, chia seeds and a banana. I prefer the chocolate powder for sure, but am also a fan of vanilla and coffee if the mood takes me.

Big improvements for me have been the RTD shakes (especially when they came to Sainsbury’s) due to a lot of travel with work, although the price of these is a little prohibitive and the bottle equates to only around 2 scoops where I’d normally have 3. The new bars are also a winner for me (the v1 bars were just not up to scratch when I tried them), and I can use them for mid-morning snacks and while on the move also.

Since I started with Huel I’ve found it much easier to control my weight and body fat % and have also done away with the post lunchtime lulls that I so often experienced when eating during the day. More importantly, I can stop feeling guilty about not being a master chef and delivering perfect nutrition throughout the day, because even with a simple evening meal, I know that Huel is delivering the nutrition I need.

I haven’t tried the Hot Huel yet but it’s on my list (3 bags seems like a big investment, I really wish I could try it). I also haven’t tried black yet because I’m not sure where Huel Black begins in and my regular protein powder ends. It feels like I’m missing the USP here.

I can honestly say that Huel has changed my life for the better, and I can’t wait to see what future innovation the Huel team delivers.

Thanks for listening,



Great story; are you on 100% Huel?
I hope you will be able to stay on track; it sounds as if you had financial constraints that made it difficult for you to use all products you like.

Hi mbs,

Not 100% - I cook an evening meal and I also snack during the day on other things (usually fruit, natural yoghurt, nuts etc). The financial constraints are mostly around the cost of RTD and the bars, but I save the bars for travelling and also try to prepare a shake in advance so I have one less shake to buy on the road.

Did you actually read the post before asking that question?

If you subscribe to powder already you can add one bag of Hot & Savoury to your next order.


Wow I didn’t know that - super useful tip thank you xstex!

No problem, go to the website then Account, should be a section that says " Try more of the Huel range" that allows you to add 1 off items.

It’s also possible to order 1 bag of every other Huel product respectively if you also order RTD.
Haven’t done that, but someone told me and it worked when I tried to put that combination into the cart…
